    Baby powder or eraser to remove glossy on cards?

    do you use/prefer Baby powder or eraser to remove glossy on cards? I use to use eraser but have pressed so hard on the card that the card actually bent and ruin. with a baby powder to remove gloss from card before sending a ttm requests do you just put some on card, rub it in and thne wipe of the excess baby powder? also, for long term card effects, does the baby powder have some strange bad interaction with the ink on the card over the years? ive never done this to a card, so i would like your thoughts/advice on this. thanks

    both should work, eraser probably works better? Idk I've only done baby powder though. An eraser just seems too rough to me.

    I use a white eraser on a flat surface, and then wipe the card on denim, only times I have ever bent the card is when I am careless in erasing and hit the corners on the way back, which bent them. Works 99.5% of the time for autos for me.

    I use a white eraser. Staples has the clickable ones. I keep one in my bag I use when I do IP autos. Just in case I need to do a quick touch up. On occasion I'll ding a card, but that's only if I'm rushing. Plus it doesn't matter to me. Mostly all my IP autos stay with my collection. Baby powder used to be what I used, but it's too messy.
